foods that you really want to eat, great. But, have a healthy snack before you go to take off the hunger edge. If you’re starving going in, you’ll probably overeat.

Don’t let your celebration go on for days. Let yourself have a little indul- gence on Tanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s (or whatever days you plan for your- self). But don’t make it one continuous cel- ebration (I think a better word is binge) from Tanksgiving until New Year’s.

AAC Law Clerk Lindsey Bailey


My favorite meal: Pulled pork BBQ sandwich with slaw and all the fixin’s When I’m not working I’m: Studying, cooking, rooting for the Hogs, or catching a show


downtown at one of my favorite local musicians or bands. SUPPORT LIVE LOCAL MUSIC! Te accomplishment of which I am most proud: Being able to have a well-balanced life be-


tween school, work, and doing things that I love. Letting law school take away the things I enjoy in life was never an option for me. Not everyone can find that balance. I hardest thing I have ever done: After being born and raised in Pocahontas, Ark., and gradu-


ating from ASU in Jonesboro, moving by myself to the “big city” of Little Rock on my own, on a very modest retail-worker’s salary, knowing only a few casual acquaintances, and having no real idea what I wanted to do once I got here. At the top of my bucket list is to: Travel the world –


EVERYWHERE! I love and appreciate all different cultures, but I have not had much opportunity to travel outside of the U.S. yet. I want to go to Africa, the Middle East, Eastern Asia, Europe, Australia, EVERYWHERE! It would be nice if I could retire around age 50 to do that. You might be surprised to learn that: My secret ambition is to run for a state office someday. My pet peeve is: People who won’t listen to a view- point that is different from theirs. Motto or favorite quote: “If it’s worth doing, then


it’s worth doing well.” How long have you been at AAC and can you describe some of your suc- cessful AAC projects? I just started at AAC in summer 2012. I have helped county judges and sheriffs familiarize themselves with Arkansas law regarding forfeited assets, sales of county property, and how to dis- pose of worthless property. My article was published and a county compliance handbook should soon follow. I am working with the AACRMF and Workers’ Comp to help them realize and pur- sue their legal remedies when someone employed by the counties is involved in an accident and the responsible party is resisting payment. Also, I am assisting in ongoing litigation and proposed legislation regarding various issues for the counties that will help county officials maximize their potential to advance the counties’ interests. What have you learned about the legal field and/or county government while interning at AAC? First, I have become acquainted with the inner-workings of county government, how it is


structured, and how it operates. I was not familiar at all with how county government worked. At AAC, I have learned that county employees are among the most loyal and hard-working government officials in the state, and that they all genuinely want to do what is best for their constituents. As our motto goes, “It may be hard work, but we do good things.” Has your experience altered your future goals or help solidify them or a combination of the two? My clerkship at AAC is my first as a law student, so of course it has helped mold my future goals, both regarding what I want and do not want to do. I was genuinely taken aback by all of the attorneys and staff at AAC and how they do so much work that will help the people. Tere is so much motivation here that has absolutely nothing to do with money, and that was refreshing. I am still not sure what exact field I want to practice in (I still have two years of law school left), but I do know that I want a career where I can go home every night knowing that I am work- ing for the betterment of my clients, my community, my state and the law. Clerking at AAC has helped me realize that this kind of rewarding career is possible, even as a lawyer!
